Lady Gaga Is Sorry For Using The Word “Retarded”

April 21, 2011 / Posted by:

Lady Caca, the self-appointed voice of acceptance, used the word “retardedto describe her feelings about the accusations that she cloned Madonna’s Express Yourself” and re-titled it “Born This Way.” The interview in which she dropped the “retarded” word made the rounds on the same day Weird Al said her manager told him that she refused to give her blessing for his parody of “Born This Way.” Caca already backpedaled from the Weird Al thing by saying her manager never played the song for her, and now she’s pedaling back even faster from her “retarded” comment.

In a statement to Perez Hilton (via UsWeekly), Caca says she regrets using that word and it’s her life’s work to blah blah blah blah blah:

“I consider it part of my life’s work and music to push the boundaries of love and acceptance.

My apologies for not speaking thoughtfully. To anyone that was hurt, please know that it was furiously unintentional.

An honest mistake, requires honesty to make.

Whether life’s disabilities, left you outcast bullied or teased, rejoice and love yourself today.”

If you needed an apology, there you go. If you needed an apology and an “I’m So Sorry” bouquet of roses, you’re not going to get it. But she did give us something even better. It’s a “Gaga Goes Down” bouquet (jump to the 1:25 mark below)!

All better now?
